A Happy New Year? Starting AND Finishing a Project in January

I have never finished a brand new project in January before but this one was irresistible. I received a beautiful Jinny Beyer Pixie Runner kit as a Christmas present.

Jinny Beyer border fabrics are always fun to use and this one was no exception. I used my Marti Michell Magic Mirror to “see” what my design would look like before I cut a single piece.

The top went together in an evening and I machine quilted a simple 1/8″ outline using Aurifil 40wt Cotton Mako. I used my sewing machine’s walking foot as a guide so there was no need to mark the fabric at all.
